Just a quick update before I crash for the night. I've had a cumulative 7 hours of sleep over the past 2 days.
Leah did AWESOMELY today. The IV wasn't a problem, the G-tube went in without issue, and 8 teeth were removed without any damage to her mouth or face.
Thank you to all our prayer warriors and to our prayer warrior wranglers. I KNOW that is why everything went well.
Grandpa Guy is there with Leah now while Jeff and I are home to eat real food, take showers and relax a bit - then Jeff will head back to the hospital, I'll sleep here and wake up early to make the drive back into DC to start my G-tube education day.
It looks like we may go home on Saturday!!!!!
We'll most likely all be at the hospital tomorrow night so we can see the New Year come together, as a family.
Thank you to everyone at the hospital who have been so great. Nurse Raena - you are by far our favorite RCU nurse - thank you for being my brain today while I was stressed out and sleep deprived. Doctor Ben - thank you for coordinating everything, for listening to us, believing us and believing in us. June - thank you for being so dedicated to Leah that you'd wake up in the middle of the night thinking about her and ways to make her comfortable and well. Doctor Preciado - thank you for being our advocate and saving grace - and for saving Leah's life back in July. To all the doctors and nurses who took part in Leah's surgery today: Thank you for taking care of my baby.
Thanks again to everyone out there for the prayers ....... keep em coming because we're still not quite done with everything - but things went really well today!!!
Good night and God Bless!
